First it wouldn't pick up all 16gb of ram, ( kept telling me a random dim was abnormal every reboot ) so I RMA'd the board. New board same thing, new ram, same thing. Finally called Asus tech and their solution was to put all 4 sticks in one side of the board. ( Not recommended if you want to run "Quad channel" but its somewhat working now ). If I were to redo my build I think I would hold off on the X79 for now as a lot of people are having issues.

2) Buying a internal DVD drive, waste of space, I use it once to load my OS and thats it. Next will be an external to use on each machine when needed.
i would use it for my blu-ray movies
